Italy was beautiful. Our guide was fantastic, as were our drivers. Best way to experience a foreign country.
We've taken tours with several companies & find Nada's Italy to be among the best. The small groups, accommodations, food & wine can't be beaten.
My wife and I recently returned from the Italian Treasurers tour (May 27 - June 6 2016). The tour far exceeded our expectations. Our tour director, xxxxx made this tour unforgettable for us. The accommodations and the land travel arrangements were first class. The food and drink was exceptional and provide you with a taste of each region that we visited. The guides for each city were very knowledgeable and skillfully planned the tours so there was no waiting in long lines. This was our first visit to Italy but it will not be our last. We are already looking at other tours through Nada's Italy.
I don't think there are enough adjectives to describe the experience we had on a recent trip to Italy with Nada's...and now, I cannot imagine taking another trip to Italy without them! From start to finish everything was perfect - hotels, meals, drivers and the tour guides are just fabulous. They could not do enough for us and it was a very memorable experience. I have already recommended them to numerous friends and will continue to do so.
You will see things and go places that would not be possible without Nada's help. It saved us so many headaches and hard decisions pertaining to destination choices, having to drive, etc.
